Bastian Schweinsteiger sends a birthday message to Toni Kroos amid reports linking the German with Manchester United
Bastian Schweinsteiger has taken to social media to send a birthday message to Toni Kroos amid reports that Manchester United are considering a transfer swoop for the Real Madrid midfielder.
The Germany pair played together during their time at Bayern Munich and Schweinsteiger was quick to send a message to Kroos after he turned 26 on Monday.
And Schweinsteiger’s personal message to Kroos will have done little to quell the speculation surrounding his future.
Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Monday morning and wrote: “Happy Birthday, @toni.kr8s! Best wishes from Manchester to Madrid!”
Kroos has made five assists in 16 La Liga games for Real Madrid so far this season.
Manchester United returned to winning ways after a run of eight games without a victory by beating Swansea City 2-1 at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
That result left the Red Devils in fifth place in the table.
